Subject: Higgs - Cushing marriage
April 16, 1902 F.F. Higgs, proprietor of The Calgary Furniture Company
married Alice Maud Cushing, daughter of former mayor W. H. Cushing. Does
anyone have connections to the Higgs family? A son Dr. Higgs worked in
Calgary and moved to BC prior to 1934.
I'm looking for any information to identify JF Higgs listed in an index to
the 1891 census. FF Higgs left home before the 1891 census and may have been
in Calgary. The Calgary Furniture Company ads regularly appeared in the 1902
Herald and he was president of the young liberals. Found the wedding
announcements in Herald and Albertan online newspaper images. -- Elizabeth
AFHS library has a 530 page book A History of the Higges or Higgs Family
published in England 1933.
South Stoke, County of Oxford
Thatcham, County of Berks
Chapter XX has The Higgs Family of Bermudas Islands and Charlottetown, PEI
with the Calgary & BC connection.
Chapter XXI has the Higgs Family of USA, descendants of John Higgs who
settled in Virginia about 1650
The book is interesting for the amount of detail on the Higgs family, closer
to a one-name study than a traditional family book with all descendants of a
selected ancestor. It has an index of places, index to subjects, index of
names and separate index for names in the USA chapter. Lots of pictures and
some family charts, no maps.
